Help when compiling Kate from source

Dear team,

I'm trying to install kate from source.
So far these are the commands I'm using:

#! /bin/bash
cmake \
-D TARGET_include_directories:PATH="/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/" \
-D Qt5_INCLUDE_DIRS:PATH="/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/" \
-D Qt5_LIBRARY_DIRS:PATH="/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/" \
make install

However, I get the following error during compiling: I think it has to be
related with not including some path file that should be there, however I'm
not sure why, since I installed all required packages as per the website.

Please any help would be appreciated and if you can *put me in cc* since
I'm not in the mailing list.
